Have you been eagerly awaiting new adventures with Rimuru and the gang? With the last episode airing on March 26, it’s not hard to see why fans may be ready for some more slimy escapades. Well, wait no more! Crunchyroll has officially announced its plans to stream the That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime OAD episode!
The new original episode will launch on July 9. The OAD episode is dropping as part of a bundle with the release of volume twelve of the light novel series. That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime tells the story of Mikami Satoru, a businessman who is stabbed to death in the street. Satoru is reincarnated in a parallel world as a low-level slime. He names himself Rimuru and possesses a unique skill known as “predator.” “Predator” allows Rimuru to absorb others’ powers and become incredibly strong. Using these abilities, Rimuru establishes his own country where creatures of all races can live together.
The latest OAD episode promises to show off the beloved citizens of the Jura Tempest Federation enjoying a picnic by the lake. Shuna and Shion, two of the ogre members of the Federation, are fighting over Rimuru’s slime form as usual. Rimuru decides to end the fighting by creating a cushion in the shape of his slime form. This way, both girls will have a slime to hold. Thus, Rimuru travels around Tempest searching for the best materials for this cushion. He soon learns of a special type of sand found along the shore in the forest perfect for this cushion. He sets out to retrieve it, only to encounter a formidable monster! To make matters worse, demon lord Milim has heard about his exploits and is coming down to join in the fun!
The OAD episode promises new never-before-seen scenes brought to you by the same cast and staff as the original TV series. So get ready to jump back into the fray with Rimuru and the gang! After all, Rimuru is “not a bad slime!”
